. michelle obama speech's last night reminding voters she had a pretty good speech at the republican convention in tampa. getting back to what paul ryan said on the campaign trail, i think the romney campaign really sees this as a gift of what happened yesterday on the sunday talk shows when those obama campaign advisors were having trouble answering the question are we better off than four years ago. president obama was quoted in usa today giving himself an incomplete on the economy. even though mitt romney has not been out, his campaign has opinion hard at work making hay on those comments. >> thank you. cnn just heard from the head of the navy seals about that controversial book out today about the bin laden raid. wait until you see the scathing memo he sent out to all seals. you'll only see it here on cnn. i was talking to my best friend. i told her i wasn't feeling like myself... i had pain in my pelvic area... and bleeding that wasn't normal for me. she said i had to go to the doctor. turned out i had uterine cancer, a type of gynecologic cancer. i received treatment and we're

. this has huge political implications as it comes after first lady michelle obama speaks to the dnc. there is a huge economic warning signal being made here. number one, $16 trillion worth of debt which means we owe more than our economy produces in any one year. our debt is bigger than our economy. secondly, we're now going to be paying close to $10 billion a week in interest alone. about a half trillion a year. 10 billion a week. up from nine billion last year. and about a quarter of that interest will be paid to foreigners. it will go out of the country. japan, china, britain, they're the three major holders of our debt. they all get about a quarter of all of this interest that is flowing and it will flow out of the country. so political impact, and a big economic danger signal too, martha. martha: we know, it was a huge focus of the rnc last week in tampa. big debt clock that loomed over the proceedings there. you simply don't hear much though about the debt from president obama. do you expect we'll hear hear anything about it at all this week? >> very little because it is a big

romney's speech. you had michelle obama do the same sort of talking about the democrats, talking about obama as someone who had a childhood that i think a lot of people could relate to. her own childhood as well growing up on the south side of chicago. so i think people looked at that convention and saw themselves in a way they didn't look at the rnc, and there weren't a lot of handles into that convention in the way i think the dnc was able to put on a real tab leau of different stories. it resonated with people. >> i think bnt is able to defend the terrible situation obama had when he walked in the door. it didn't seem like whining when he said it. president obama uses bnt in a new campaign add. let's look at this and see how this is going to register. >> he keeps saying it. >> this prz cannot tell you he's better off today than when he took office. >> here is where we were in 2008. >> worst financial collapse since the great depression. >> american workers were laid off in numbers not seen in three decades. >> here's where we are today, 30 months of private sector job growth creatin

to the podium. first lady michelle obama is expected to speak on tuesday, september 4. wednesday, september 5, elizabeth warren who's running for senate in massachusetts will be going up and making a speech. the nominating speech will be made by former president bill clinton and temperature vote on the presidential nomination, the roll call of the states all takes place on wednesday, september 5. on thursday, vice president biden speaks, and president barack obama makes his acceptance speech. you'll be able to see that all on the c-span network. you'll be able to listen to it on c-span radio. for all of the information on our coverage of the democratic national convention in charlotte, north carolina, go to our webpage, c-span.org. back to the phones. brian in san antonio, texas is on our line for republicans. brian, how should political conventions be changed in 2016. as far as the conventions go, they're fine. i think we need to hear what they have to say. what bothers me is the way that the media covers the conventions is kind of horrifying. you know, like many people have said when they c
when the president is on the road. michelle obama told "us weekly" that she lets bo sleep on the bed when obama is not around. >> bill: is that right? >> yep. >> bill: i saw a funny joke the other day. oh, i know. in that bob woodward book. talked about when he first met barack obama was when obama made the democratic response to the gridiron dinner. when he was still in the senate. just elected to the senate. and he said that he had just seen a study that having -- a speech to give. having sex before giving a speech really made you perform a lot better. and he told michelle about this and she said well, did the best you can. you're on your own buddy. anyhow. all right. so chris let's start off with this romney video. because you know, romney has had a -- kind of a rough ride, right? since the convention. maybe a little before the convention. maybe goes back to his pre-olympic tour or when he appointed paul ryan but then there were stories about a lot of rumbling inside the romney campaign and then y
